LV= transcript for our video guide to landlord insurance and what it covers

Hello, I'm Bonnie. At LV=, we understand that being a landlord means you have to deal with unexpected problems that a regular homeowner doesn't normally have to worry about.

LV= offers specialist landlord insurance so you can rest easy that should something happen at your buy-to-let property, we are there to help.

Our residential landlord insurance is best suited for landlords who own up to four buy-to-let properties, those who need to insure the building and those who let their properties to tenants for six months or more.

With this specialist insurance, your buildings are covered for damages caused by fire, flooding, storm and accidental damage. You're also covered for any loss of rent, and alternative accommodation costs to rehouse your tenants, if there's damage to your rental property.

Our landlord insurance also includes up to £2m worth of property owner's liability for compensation and third party expenses as well as up to £100,000 legal expenses cover. And in case your relationship with your tenants becomes problematic, you'll also have access to a free 24/7 legal helpline to discuss any property disputes. Before we forget, you can also choose to add landlord's contents insurance to your policy if you'd like the peace of mind of knowing your furniture, carpets and furnishings are protected.
